Your Pet’s Oral Hygiene

While dogs don’t typically have cavities, they do endure most of the other dental problems that humans do as well as the pain that comes with them. Senior dogs and dogs whose start in life was less than ideal often fall victim much more quickly than dogs who receive early veterinary care. As a caring dog owner it’s important that you develop a regular canine dental routine, schedule regular vet visits, and be on the lookout for dental problems that your dog may be having. Preventing dental problems not only keeps your dog’s mouth healthy, but keeps their organs and body healthy as well.
